Jack Black Travel Essentials Review

Hey Beauties!

Its coming up on that time of year when we all hopefully go on a little get away during the summer, I hope everyone is going somewhere nice and if not i hope youre enjoying the sun that we have just now.

The Jack Black Travel Essentials* set is the perfect thing for those of you that are on the go a lot its perfect for taking with you if you are on business or if you’re on holiday, best part is these are actually quite large tubes they should last multiple uses.

Jack Black Travel Essentials Review

This set comes with 4 fantastic travel size products: Double-Header Shampoo and Conditioner, Body-Building Hair Gel, Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser, Double-Duty Face Moisturizer SPF 20

Jack Black Travel Essentials

Firstly we have the Double Header Shampoo and Conditioner is an all-in-one shampoo and conditioner that works to gently cleanse and detangle the hair whilst hydrating and treating a dandruff-prone scalp. Fortified with a PureScience® formula, the creamy, sulphate-free blend combines creatine with coconut oil and mineral-packed organic kelp to nourish, thicken and strengthen strands. Usually i’m quite wary of products that say 2-in-1 because i find they dont always perform as good as they say they do, I was pretty surprised how well this actually worked a lot of the time if i dont use a conditioner or a mask my hair can feel dry and tangled but with this my hair felt really soft i think that might have to do with the Coconut Oil that’s in it.

Then we have the Body-Building Hair Gel which i personally wasn’t a great fan off as it was such a firm hold, i tried blowdrying it into my hair and also using it when my hair was dry but just felt it wasn’t for me but that doesn’t say its a bad product it might be fantastic and a great product for one of you out there. The Body Building Hair Gel is a lightweight styling gel that delivers long-lasting hold with conditioning properties. With a new and improved formula, the non-sticky product combines organic basil leaf, organic kelp and ginger root to add body and fullness whilst nourishing and adding shine. Drying instantly on the hair, the gel will hold your style in place without weighing hair down or leaving unsightly flakes and build-up.

 I really like the Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser it felt like it was actually giving my face a really good cleanse also the scent of the product was really nice as well. I found my skin seemed to look better when this was added into my routine i think mostly because it was cleansing so well that my other products could penetrate the skin better to give better results. Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser is 2 in 1 liquid cleanser and toner to remove excess oil, dirt and impurities to leave you with a clear and smooth complexion. Formulated with the PureScience® innovation, it works gently to hydrate and refresh skin and witch hazel and organic chamomile are contained to soothe and reduce redness.

Lastly we have the Double-Duty Face Moisturizer SPF 20 which is the product i kind of used the least because i have a moisturizer i really like already so i asked one of my friends to use this product and he said that it left his skin feeling really hydrated (he has dry skin) and it didnt sit on his skin like a lot of other moisturisers for men, it was absorbed really easily, he also liked the fact there was an SPF in it as well for a bit of sun protection. Double-Duty Face Moisturizer SPF 20 is a hydrating cream to improve the skin’s appearance. Blue algae extract provides vitamin E to reduce inflammation and leave skin supple and mineral-rich sea parsley to reduce irritation. Its advanced moisturising complex delivers sun protection to shield skin from exposure to harmful UVA and UVB rays and contains organic antioxidants to promote collagen formation.

Jack Black Travel Essentials

For only £21 on Mankind.co.uk, i think this is a fantastic set and great value for taking on holiday because you can only carry a certain amount of liquids so this would be great to take with you. Its good as well if you dont want to commit to buying full size products you can bascially try the smaller versions before the more expensive ones.

  • I see a lot of bloggers/instagrammers in particular slating and trashing products when they didn't see results.

Just because something doesn't work for you it doesn't mean it's a bad product it just means it's not right for you.

Personally I can't use a lot of L-ascorbic acid products because my skin just doesn't get on well with it, this doesn't mean it's a bad product it just doesn't work for me.

I feel like we need to be more objective when talking about products instead of making instant snap decisions.

If a product isn't working for you, ask yourself: how long have you been using it for? Are your expectations realistic? And finally is it your skin that's the problem not the product? .

  • Probably one of my most favourite products ever! 
@pixibeautyuk Glow Tonic was one of the first actives I ever used, I bought a bottle when I was in London with @jaynekitsch years ago when they only had their London store and it honestly changed everything! That's when I became hooked on skincare because of how much i saw my skin change.

I have a review coming out tomorrow for this superstar product, keep an eye out for it ❤️

  • "If you can't pronounce it dont use it"

I see this myth a lot and it really bugs me! It's completely baseless and is created in fear. 
Just because you can't pronounce a chemical name it doesn't mean it's somehow bad for you.

For example Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate sounds scary it's a long name but that's no reason to fear it because it's just a cell communicating ingredient that is often known as "Botox in a bottle" 
Fear is such a pervasive thing in the skincare industry a lot of brands sell their products based on fear and we honestly need to get over this fear and to realise that must because something has a long name we can't pronounce it doesn't mean it's bad for you.

Next time you pick up a product then put it back because it has too many ingredients you can't pronounce just remember that it's all about the formula. You should be objectively thinkkng about the formula instead of jumping to fear every time.

  • *UPDATED SKINCARE ROUTINE*

CLEANSER - @fprescottskin i honestly don't think I'll ever use another cleanser apart from the @dermalogicauk special cleanse when I'm at the gym. I have talked about how much I love Tribalm. It's the best balm cleanser I've ever use not to mention it's so travel friendly too.

TONE - This isn't a toner but I usually this in the place where toner should be. I've been using the new @drdennisgross (*gifted) Resurfacing Liquid Peel for a while and it's pretty awesome. There's no percentage so I'm not sure how strong it is but I use this every other day and the off days I just use the Alpha Beta Peel Pads. 
SERUM - @skinceuticals_uki H.A Intensifier (*gifted) I am absolutely in love with this! While it's on the higher end of the spectrum being quite expensive it's so worth it in my opinion. Instead of being a bog standard hyaluronic acid this serum actually helps to amplify the skins natural hyaluronic acid levels which I find fascinating. It contains high levels of HA as well as Proxylane and purple rice extract.

EYE SERUM - @alphahskincare Absolute Eye Complex (*gifted) this was sent to me a while back and I only just remembered I had it so I thought I'd give it a go. Usually I don't care for eye creams unless they are active because to be it's essentially useless paying for more for a small amount of moisturiser in a tube.

TREATMENT - @paulaschoiceuk
1% clinical strength retinol - this has to be the single strongest over the counter retinol on the market, definitely not for first time use. If there was a otc retinol that I had to choose it would be this one everytime.

MOISTURISER - @stubborncosmetics
Custom Made Moisturiser *gifted - I have said this many times but I'll say it again, I have so much love for this moisturiser it's so good to find something customised to you rather than just hoping something will work.

  • I feel like a lot of the times lactic acid is overlooked in favour of glycolic. Lactic acid can be a massive help to those with dry skin.

First and foremost Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid and unlike glycolic acid, lactic acid works on the surface level to left of any dead skin cells.

I like to compare Lactic acid to Pac man munching away at the dead skin cells. 
Lactic acid is a fantastic moisturising ingredient, it's so good that there's even a prescription product called LacHydrin (12% lactic acid) that is used to hydrate chronically dry skin.

My favourite lactic acid used to be @sundayriley Good Genes but since they have reformulated it to be glycolic now I'm on the hunt for a new version. I had heard that @deciem does a really good 5% and 10% Lactic acid that I need to revisit.

  • Everyone knows that I love pixi, Glow Tonic has to be one of my all time favourite products simply because it's so effective ❤️ I was recently sent a bunch of new pixi products to try and DetoxifEYE Depuffing Eye Patches were apart of that package and I wanted to talk about them.

While I hate the name of the product because no matter what anyone ever tells you you can't detoxify the skin by using a topical product it just isn't possible the role of detoxifing goes to the kidneys and not the skin. 
Despite the god awful name, the product is actually pretty good. They do a good job of depuffing the eyes.

Each patch is made from hydrogel and doesn't slip down your face so you don't have to walk around face up to the sky haha

The main component of these patches is caffeine which is a vasoconstrictor that tightens the skin getting rid of the puffiness temporarily.

The patches also say they contain gold but I'm not even going to entertain that as one of the ingredients because gold does nothing for the skin topically despite many brands trying to convince you otherwise.

I tend to use these in the PM before bed but you can use them in the morning before you apply your makeup .
